Project: The role of inflammation in the pathogenesis of asthma.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- Asthma is characterized by a chronic inflammation and hyperresponsiveness of the airways. The aim of the project is to investigate the mechanisms responsible for chronic allergic sensitization of the lower airways, to study the relationship between airway inflammation and airway hyperresponsiveness, both in vivo and in vitro. The finding in animal models will be correlated with human observations.
